The Irish team's 39-7 win against the Scarlets at the Royal Dublin Showgrounds brought a bonus point to match the one the Exiles picked up against Brive, keeping the two sides level at the top of Pool Six. It should be a rather entertaining case of winner takes all on the final weekend of pool matches.
